This Academy of Country Music awards show is a big 'un for Reba McEntire.

Yes, she's co-hosting, and, yes, she has landed a coveted performance slot.

And now, Reba is already a winner, even though the awards show doesn't happen until Sunday night (April 3).

The ACMs announced a round of off-camera awards, and Reba has landed the Career Achievement Award, one that has been won in previous years by folks such as Kenny Rogers, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.

Taylor Swift landed the Jim Reeves International Award for spreading country music worldwide. In the last few months, Taylor finished her first Asian tour, and now, she's wrapping up a European tour.

Garth Brooks and Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers will receive Cliffie Stone Pioneer Awards.

The awards will be presented at the ACM Honors event, which will be held in the fall at the historic Ryman Auditorium, which, by the way, just so happens to have won the ACM's Venue of the Year prize.
